In early December, Jemile Weeks' baseball career was thrown upside down. He was traded away from the only organization he had ever known, the Oakland Athletics, and sent to the Orioles for one of the franchise's most popular players, closer Jim Johnson, in what was immediately deemed a salary dump. Although the 27-year-old second baseman viewed it as a new opportunity, the external pressure was once again descending on Weeks, a 2008 first-rounder who grew up playing in, and around, the shadow of his All-Star big brother, Rickie.

The Orioles believe they received good news Tuesday as an MRI on shortstop J.J. Hardy's lower back showed no changes. The club believes he could return to the starting lineup as early as Friday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Hardy met with team orthopedist Dr. Michael Jacobs on Tuesday afternoon and received a cortisone shot in the sacroiliac joint in his lower back. It's similar to what Hardy underwent in April, which alleviated a much more intense pain in his back at that time.

Going over the list of the nearly 60 players who will be in Sarasota, Fla., when major league spring training opens for the Orioles next week and trying to project the club's 25-man roster for Opening Day is a tough task. However, there are roughly 13 "locks" for the Opening Day roster. After that, there are about six players who have a better chance to make the team than not. That doesn't leave much room for everyone else, and it'd be best for two newcomers who are competing for roster spots to show they can play multiple positions in order to have a chance to crack the Opening Day roster.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette mentioned several times this month that he would like to bolster his bench depth, especially from the left side of the plate. Well, in a matter of four days, he added four left-handed hitters to the roster. No sexy names, but potentially role fillers, and that's a Duquette specialty. Catcher and left-handed hitter Steve Clevenger came up from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday. Switch-hitting utility player Jimmy Paredes arrived from the Tides on Thursday.

NEW YORK -- The Orioles are expected make a roster move Wednesday to place a player on the 15-day disabled list, but manager Buck Showalter wouldn't disclose the player following the team's 14-5 win over the New York Yankees on Tuesday afternoon. Utility player Jemile Weeks was not in Triple-A Norfolk's lineup Tuesday night, and he was making his way north to join the club for Wednesday's game, according to an industry source. The only available position player who didn't play in Tuesday's win was outfielder David Lough, who was 0-for-3 and played the entire game Monday in the club's 4-2 loss to the Yankees.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Catcher Caleb Joseph was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday and made his major league debut, batting ninth against the Rays. He was 0-for-3 in the game. To create 25-man roster space for Joseph - a 40-man roster spot was already available - the team optioned infielder Jemile Weeks to Norfolk. Joseph, the Orioles' seventh-round pick in 2008, was hitting .261 with two home runs and 11 RBIs at Norfolk. He was the Eastern League Player of the Year in 2013 after hitting 22 home runs and driving in 97 runs for Double-A Bowie.

The Orioles announced three more cuts after Saturday's game, including Jemile Weeks, which essentially confirms the expected: Rookie Jonathan Schoop will start the season on the 25-man roster. Weeks and pitchers Kevin Gausman and T.J. McFarland officially were optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. Gausman and McFarland are expected to be in the starting rotation for the Tides. Weeks, whom the Orioles acquired in a trade with Oakland for closer Jim Johnson, hit .171 in 18 spring games.

While the Orioles' trade of closer Jim Johnson late Monday night immediately offered more questions than answers about the club's direction this offseason, executive vice president Dan Duquette insisted Tuesday that the deal can't truly be evaluated for the next several weeks. The Orioles dealt Johnson, who saved 101 games over the past two seasons, to the Oakland Athletics just before the midnight tender deadline in exchange for infielder Jemile Weeks and a minor league player to be named later.

There are no apparent slots in the Orioles starting rotation, but pitching prospects Kevin Gausman  and Mike Wright are off to hot starts for Triple-A Norfolk. Gausman, who is simultaneously being stretched out as a starter in the minors and kept on a strict pitch count to save him for later in the season, is rightfully seen by many as the solution to whatever rotation issues may come. In 21 1/3 innings over five starts, Gausman has struck out 20 hitters and walked 11, en route to a 2.53 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.

Late Monday night the Orioles traded former All-Star closer Jim Johnson to the Oakland Athletics for second baseman Jemile Weeks and a minor league player to be named later. Johnson, who saved 101 games for the Orioles in the past two seasons, was set to make more than $10 million in arbitration in 2014. Instead of paying that much for a closer - and one who had led the majors with nine blown saves last season - the club picked up a young infielder and another minor leaguer and will be able to use the money allocated for Johnson in other ways.
